Raymond Chandler
“I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun.”
Raymond Chandler, Farewell, My Lovely

Virginia Woolf
“We are not as simple as our friends would have us to meet their ends.”
Virginia Woolf

Orhan Pamuk
“If we love someone very much, we know that even if we give him the most valuable thing we have, we know not to expect harm from him. This is what a sacrifice is.”
Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

Marcus Valerius Martialis
“Tomorrow's life is too late. Live today.”
Marcus Valerius Martialis

Anthony Doerr
“Read a verse of Homer and you can walk the walls of Troy alongside Hector; fall into a paragraph by Fitzgerald and your Now entangles with Gatsby’s Now; open a 1953 book by Ray Bradbury and go hunting T. rexes. Ursula Le Guin said: “Story is our only boat for sailing on the river of time,” and she’s right, of course. The shelves of every library in the world brim with time machines. Step into one, and off you go.”
Anthony Doerr, author of “All the Light We Cannot See”
